Friends of Duck Egg,

Hope you are all well, having a lovely time and trying to make the most of this erratic weather (especially if you are a UK reader!).

We have been flat out with a number of projects and sourcing furniture for clients has been taking us all over the country and into Europe.

Lots of new projects to share with you so let’s get started:

Bespoke Tables with reclaimed Victorian Tops:

Bespoke TableVictorian Bespoke Table

Here at Duck Egg Designs we love our community and are big fans of social media, we meet so many talented, interesting people through it and more and more are leading to partnerships and giving extremely talented people a platform to showcase their talents.

We got approached by a talented carpenter who was as passionate about reclamation and vintage interiors as we are and we agreed on partnering up on his made to measure, bespoke Victorian Tables. To order contact with measurements and colour palette.

Duck Egg Crab Kitchen Splashbacks:

Kitchen Splashback

We are very excited about the launch of our Kitchen Splashbacks. This is the first one of the range which comes in made to measure sizes, colours and will be featuring more of our prints in the future, giving a bespoke, fresh, modern feel to a vintage interior or classic country kitchen.

Contact us directly on for more details.

Rocking Summer Deck Chairs:

Rocking Summer Deck Chair

We adore this gorgeous, stripy rocking deck chair, just perfect for the summer.

Not only is this chair easy on the eye but incredibly practical, with it’s rocking motion it makes it easy to enter and exit the chair, perfect for an elderly or pregnant person still keen to enjoy the beach or garden.

The stripes are green and red pastel colours and blend in lovely with our garden.

The Deck Chair is easy to fold away, light weight and very durable (tested for hours by my husband!).

Price: £70

Vintage Weighing Scales:

Vintage Kitchen Scales

As gorgeous as they are practical, no baker should be without these timeless kitchen scales. With a large and easy to read dial you will be able to measure up to 1000 ml in capacity and up to 3 kg. This sleek and stylish design with a  hint of retro inspiration is as much as a beautiful ornament for the kitchen as a staple part of everyday life. Perfect to have out on the counter and too good to hide away, this essential part of a kitchen collection looks the part in any style home and the soft Shutter Blue can be matched to other items in our range. Why not match with our storage jars or match to our bread bin?

Price: £20

Seed Box:

Blue Seed Box

This has been one of our best sellers over the last two months. This Seed Box is the perfect gift for the keen gardener. A stylish and chic way to organise your seeds and keep them safe and dry. The potting shed essential! Available in shutter blue.

Truly exciting (and exhausting!)… until next time, take care and looking forward to catching up soon.
